The Tarzan yell is a wild roar made by a feral man who is most obviously called Tarzan. In the golden age of Tarzan films, the retro Jewish American hunk Johnny Weissmuller popularised it because of its loud sound and operatic quality. He didn't created the sound though, because it's technically a creation of late silent era hunk Elmo Lincoln.
The Tarzan yell is used by the eponymous character in case of an attack or a rescue.
